This series is very good, I recommend kids to read it. It can be 11 and up because of the action that's in this series. This book( the first book) can be for advanced 10 year olds in reading or 11 and up. This is the first book of a heart-thrilling series that I love. Young Will is an orphan and dreams of being a knight, but achieves something greater than anyone that knew him ever expected, including himself. He learns how to use deadly weapons, track animals and people, and learns the value of friendship and loyalty when he gets accepted to be part of a mysterious, successful, and humorous group.
